Between radio disco and progressive metal Waltari was already on the scene back in 1986. They have never been a normal rock band. They still aren’t today and never will be. To mark the band’s 25th anniversary in 2011, Waltari decided not to release a lackluster and deathly boring ‘best of’ album, but instead a cover album. “If the cover album is the moon, the current record, ‘You Are Waltari’, is the sun – the two albums are complete opposites,” states chief songwriter, singer, bassist and keyboard player Kartsy Hatakka.
